If you or someone you know is seeking addiction help, you may have heard about Suboxone treatment clinics. Suboxone, a medication used in medication-assisted treatment programs (MAT programs), can be effective for those struggling with opioid addiction and seeking recovery. Call 866.931.9312 to speak with someone from Evoke Wellness about our Suboxone treatment clinic in Florida, where our experienced team uses Suboxone in MAT.
What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?
MAT is an evidence-based method to treat opioid addiction which combines counseling and therapy with medication to help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. MAT has been proven to be successful in reducing opioid use and preventing relapse. MAT does not include medications for other types of addiction. Suboxone is one medication approved for opioid use disorder (OUD), and it is available at Evoke Wellness’ Suboxone treatment clinic in Florida. Our Suboxone treatment program in Florida provides comprehensive care that includes Suboxone in MAT to help people struggling with OUD recover.
The most common medications used in MAT are methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, and Suboxone. These medications target the same brain receptors as opioids while blocking other opioids from attaching to these receptors. This helps reduce cravings while minimizing the effects of drugs like heroin or oxycodone on the body.
What Is Suboxone?
Our Suboxone treatment program in Florida is part of our MAT offering. Suboxone is a combination of two drugs—buprenorphine and naloxone—which work together to reduce cravings for opioids while blocking the effects of other opioids on the body. This can help people achieve long-term recovery from their addiction.
People struggling with opioid addiction can benefit significantly from taking Suboxone as part of their addiction treatment program. OUD develops quickly, and Suboxone can help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone is only available through a doctor’s prescription, so it is vital to contact a Suboxone specialist or a Suboxone treatment clinic in Florida for more information. Going to a Suboxone treatment clinic can be especially beneficial for people who have tried other forms of treatment but have not sustained long-term sobriety. These people may have experienced recurring cravings or withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting cold turkey.
Suboxone is most effective when part of an overall MAT program which includes counseling and therapy sessions with an addiction specialist and ongoing support from family members or friends who are invested in your recovery journey. This comprehensive approach to treating addiction makes individuals more likely to maintain sobriety over time.
If you're ready to start your journey to recovery, we're here to help.
Benefits of Suboxone in MAT
MAT can be beneficial no matter which prescription medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is used. Suboxone can provide individuals with a way to manage opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms to focus on their recovery. Patients at our Suboxone treatment clinic in Florida may experience many other benefits of undergoing MAT, including the following:
- Better functioning relationships with family members and close friends
- Better overall health
- Fewer drug-related health risks
- Improved mental clarity and focus
- Improved quality of life
- Increased energy levels
- Increased motivation for achieving long-term sobriety
- Lower risk of overdose
- Reduced cravings and withdrawal symptoms
However, an advantage of undergoing MAT that is particularly beneficial to those in early addiction recovery is better access to resources—such as job opportunities or safe housing options—that will help them stay on track and not relapse.
